Default Does Leonard add any value to this team?

Why is he even on the roster?

You couldn't have just asked this in the game thread? Here's a thought...apply for the GM's job and you can help form our roster.....

Why don't you apply for the Mane admin so you can tell people what to do? Shut up and let the man post what he wants. You don't have to read it.

Where is our blocking on preturn? This isnt college ball, there should be a return on the punt not just a securing of the ball.

He takes what he can get, and he holds on to the football. I'd prefer that to trying to get a home run every time and dropping the ball.

Fact is, it's an extremely low percentage of punts that are returned for a score, or even for significant yardage.

Rahim Moore is bound to get an injury soon with his frail arms and upper body..... Or he'll simply get benched for his poor tackling and shoddy ****ing coverage...

I agree that ball security is important, but **** man this ain't inter murals or 3A high school. The NFL has the elitist of the elite athletes who are rewarded anywhere from six to seven figures to play a game. The Denver Broncos are a billion dollar franchise in a multiple billion dollar league and they can't find some 4.4 40 kid that for $400,000 can both secure the ball and gain more than 5 yards per return? There were at least two opportunities where even a moderately decent return guy gets the ball into Texan territory. Why not teach Hillman to return punts, since they are hell-bent on getting Lance Ball 15 touches per game.

he doesnt' catch a punt in the end zone and then bring it out to the 14 costing the team at least 10 seconds and 6 yards.

Meh. Employment quotas are against white males, not for them.
